Growing up as an evangelical, I was taught that everyone is born with original sin. I no longer believe in original sin. I know videos like this aren’t scientific studies and don’t really prove anything, but I appreciate them as reminders of the good that is in each of us. This particular video, filmed in Norway, was shot as part of a charity effort to send coats and other winter things to Syrian refugee camps.
